OK. My TP decided firstly to do nothing unless I restarted on a daily basis. Then it briefly stopped that, in favour of a restart every other day or so. It then lost my pictures during a restart ( nothing too drastic lost, a bit of sentimental stuff) so I tried to pull them out of a backup.
The backup message then froze, "preparing" and never gets going. I tried checking accounts.
Accounts freezes "searching for accounts"
Apps - nothing.
I contacted HP, who led me into webOS Doctor via Java etc, which should have taken "15 minutes to an hour".
TP was connected as instructed for most of morning with no messages, so I called them, and once they realise I'm out of warranty, got waved a fond farewell!
I lost the pad for a day, or two, then this morning put it on charge, and strangely after nothing for 2 days, after avfew minutes the charger symbol came on. Presuming it not to be as dead as I originally thought, I waited a couple of hours, pressed the on button/launcher and up comes the screen with the symbols from internet to arrow.
Still no photos, can't get apps or accounts. I was able to search the internet from the "earth symbol", but now can only search from "just type", and have cautiously accessed e-mails by logging into my account through the tablet
I'm not computer literate at all so get lost in the computer speak, and I'm loathe to try another restart, backup or web OSdoctor unless that is the right thing to do.
Any clues as to what I did wrong, how to get the pics and accounts back, in words of one syllable.
Help gratefully appreciated as I had a stroke last year and my own hard drives a bit knackered too
